COVID: Bennett asks Pfizer CEO Bourla to speed up jab for children
The Health Ministry’s advisory committee on COVID vaccines was set to meet on Thursday night to explore offering a booster to individuals as young as 40. Prime Minister Naftali Bennett asked Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla to speed up the process to receive approval for a corona vaccine for children under 12, amid a spike in cases.
According to Ministry Director-General Prof. Nachman Ash, preliminary data suggests that the booster – which is currently being offered to people over 60 – can help curb morbidity.
Bennett has already asked the health funds to prepare for vaccinating as early as Sunday.
